Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Jan 1947 to Oct 1962, Harrison missed 80 of 1,528 roll call votes, which is 5.2%. This is much worse than the median of 2.1% among the lifetime records of representatives serving in Oct 1962. The chart below reports missed votes over time.

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses and major life events.
